"Now the noisy winds are still;
April's coming up the hill!
All the Spring is in her train.
Led by shining ranks of rain;
Pit, pat, patter, clatter,
Sudden sun and clatter, patter!
First the blue and then the shower;
Bursting bud, and smiling flower;
Brooks set free with tinkling ring;
Birds too full of song to sing;
Crisp old leaves astir with pride,
Where the timid Violets hide, —
All things ready with a will, —
April's coming up the hill!"
— Mary Metres Dodge,

APRIL FOOL'S DAY.
The term, April Fool's Day, was given to the first
day of April in allusion to the custom of playing practical
jokes or sending people on fool's errands on that day.
The origin of this custom is much disputed. One of
the alleged origins arose from the farcical commemoration
of Christbeing sent from Annas to Caiaphas,from Caiaphas
to Pilate, from Pilate to Herod, and from Herod back to
Pilate, the crucifixion taking place about the first of April.
It seems certain, though, that formerly universal festi-
vities were held at the vernal equinox, beginning about
the twenty-fifth of March and ending with the first day of
April. The chief amusement of the people was in fooling
their friends. It is interesting to find that the Hindoos
have a similar festival which terminates the last day of
It has been plausibly suggested that Europe got the
day from the French. France was the first nation to
adopt the reformed calendar. Charles IX decreed that
all festivities usually accompanying April first should be
transferred to January first. Those who disliked the
change made mock gifts and paid calls of pretended cere-
mony on April first.
Various countries apply different names to April Fool's
Day. In Scotland they have the custom of "hunting the
gowk," and April fools are known as April gowks. The
word "gowk" means cuckoo — a term of contempt. In
France the April fool is known as "poisson d' avril."
Wfa College Greeting*
The first of April will soon be here, and let us remem-
ber that throughout the world that day is set aside as the
practical jokers' own day.
Edna Robb, '16.
It was late in the evening on one of those smouldering
August days. Little Johnie could not sleep. He sat up
in bed and looked anxiously out into the calm, silent night.
The full moon was beautiful, casting long, weird shadows
on the lawn. Close by the hedge, lay motionless, the
garden hose. It looked almost snake-like lying there.
Johnie could not help thinking of the fairy stories his sis-
ter had told him when she put him to bed. He was won-
dering now if there really were fairies. Just then he
thought he saw a beautiful one, gliding softly across the
lawn to where the hose lay. She was beautifully gowned,
in misty white, which flowed about her in the old Grecian
way. Her hair was light and shone like gold in the moon-
light. By this time Johnie was out of bed and by the win-
dow. He always wanted to see fairies and now he scarcely
realized what was before him. He gazed more and more
intently and was almost sure he saw her lift the hose and
begin sprinkling the lawn and flower beds. First he saw
her by the roses, she seemed to be talking with them, and
a minute later was drowning the very ones, until they
nodded their heads with sufficiency. She did this to other
parts of the garden and finally when her task was com-
pleted, she vanished as she came, into space. Little
Johnie sat dazed. He realized the atmosphere had be-
come much cooler. Was it because of the fairy or the
water? Surely he was not dreaming. He was wide
awake and sitting by the window. He waited for the fairy
to reappear but she did not. Looking longingly out of
the window upon the garden, little Johnie turned to his
bed. He would be sure in the morning if the fairy were
Wfje College Greeting*
really there or not. The grass and bushes would prove
it to him. With this thought he went to sleep. On
awakening he looked once more out of the window and
anxiously called his mother to dress him. Then running
across the lawn and seeing the bushes he discovered them
to be really damp. He wasn't a bit surprised. For
hadn't he seen a really, truly, fairy the night before?
Flora Mueller, '20.
Whether or not we have been conscious of their com-
ing, the birds are again making their presence known
about us. The shortest walk cannot be taken without
seeing a robin bobbing his saucy head as he runs along
before us, a little brown creeper going up a tree, or a tiny
nuthatch slipping down. The blackbirds fill the trees
with their twitter, the kinglets and juncoes flit along the
hedges. The song of the lark comes uncertainly from
the fields, the flying bluebird catches the rays of the sun-
The winter residents are aroused by the home com-
ing. Noisily they cry their welcome. The crows, the
bluejays, make much more commotion than when they
were among the majority of our feathered friends. Even
the dusty little sparrows frisk about more gayly, less ready
to accept the proffered feast of crumbs on the window-
ledge. The cardinal in his shining plumage calls out his
thankfulness for the return of spring from the tipmost top
of trees. The steady honk, honk of the wild geese pro-
claims it spring indeed.

Our Arrius used to say happropriate
Whenever he wanted just appropriate,
And hambush for ambush quite pleased him, no doubt,
Especially when it had come with a shout.
His mother, his uncle, the free one, I mean,
His grandpa, his grandma, this same way did lean.
Then Syria promised a rest to our ears
For he had been sent there to stay a few years.
Our ears heard the same words, but softly and low,

With never a fear that they'd hear them just so,
When sudden the horrible news came back
That Arrius saw what he thought was a lack

Had yielded it up to Hionian fame.

" 'TIS ALWAYS THUS."
"Neither a borrower nor a lender be,
For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry/'
"We're going to have a spread to-night," announced
Edith, as she rushed info the room, and deposited a pile
of books upon her already crowded desk. Her room-
mate did not look up from her studying, but asked ab-
sently, "Oh, are we? And are we going to have some-
thing to eat? "
"Of course we'll have eats," declared Edith. "Madge,
you're always so practical. What's the use of worrying
when entertaining is such a very simple matter. You
know I got a cake from home this morning, and — why,
there are just lots of things we can have. I planned it
all out in class when I should have been listening to that
lecture. I happened to see some of the girls after class,
so invited them then."
"And how many did you invite, if you please," in-
"Let me see, with us I believe there are ten alto-
"My goodness, Edith, you don't mean to say you've
invited ten people to eat one small cake!"
"Oh, but I expect to have lots more. We'll make
fudge and tea and — "
"Do you realize that our supply of silver and china
Cfje College fretting*
has been diminished by our friends who borrow and fail
to return them, until now we have exactly three saucers
and two spoons? "
'That's a small matter. I can borrow in return and
I'll try to borrow from the same ones who have come to
us before, and then I can forget to return them. Til
start in now," and Edith hurried out of the room.
Presently she returned, her arms full of her spoils.
Setting the dishes down on the table, she said. "Out of
the ten plates 1 borrowed, four happened to be ours. I
don't believe the girls realized it, either. Everybody had
cups and spoons they'd give me, so you see it was an easy

(A moving picture plot).
Grace sitting in her room conceives a grand idea for
a stunt that has to be given that evening. The sun
streams through the windows; her clock on the "mantle"
points to ten minutes of nine. She rushes to Beulah's
room with her scheme, but finding no one there slips a
note under the door. Her face shows that she is not sur-
prised to find the room empty as she starts for a room
down the corridor. On the way she meets a Freshman
Hfyt College Greeting*
and asks if she has seen Beulah. She receives as an
answer a reverent and polite, "No ma'am." As she
reaches the door she knocks vigorously and enters the
room in almost the same instant. Here she is told that
Beulah has been there, but has just gone to the library.
Her face lights up with hope. She is urged to stay, but
no, she must find Beulah while she can locate her. As
Grace is seen coming down the stairs Beulah disappears
around the corner.
Beulah's errand takes her to the botany laboratory
and then directly to her room where she finds the note.
She follows much the same course to find Grace that
Grace did to find her. At each place she is told that
Grace is looking for her and where she was last seen. In
the front hall the Freshman rushes up to her with that
happy radiance which comes only when a Freshman can
do an upper classman a favor, shining all over her face,
exclaiming, "Grace is looking all over for you, I saw her
just a second ago in the Greetings off ice.' ' With a
dawning look of hope Beulah starts for the Greetings
office. The disappearing elevator lifts her long sought
friend out of sight just as she comes to the official win-
Grace leaves the elevator on her home floor, goes to
her room, and throws herself on the bed exhausted. A
few minutes later the Freshman finds her here. Her
message this time is that she has seen Beulah in the front
hall. Grace hurries down the stairs not wiling to wait
for the elevator which as it happens carries Beulah up as
Grace goes down. The chase is on again in full force
when the chapel bell rings. Among the ten o'clock
crowd in the front hall the two girls spy each other. They
rush into one another's arms, the light of success after a
long struggle on their faces.
Helena Munson, '15.

WHEN THE FUSE BURNED OUT.
It was nine-seventeen ! A most tragic hour for such
an occurrence with lessons to get or to finish, party dresses
to be folded away and hair to be put up for the night,
but, how did we know that it would happen, or how were
we to blame? "Roomie" was positively famished and
I was only going to make her some toast. The first piece
was splendid, just brown and crisp enough to whet my
appetite and to cause the whole sad incident.
"Funny this bread doesn't brown," I exclaimed after
a few minutes.
"Maybe you turned the current off," suggested my
roommate." Turn it on again and see." I turned, but still
the toaster did not redden; I pulled out the toaster and
connected it again; I turned the switch and was just trying
to make the connection over again, which my roommate
called, "Come in!"
Come in! and they came. There was the girl with
a mouth full of hair pins and kid curlers, the girl with a
besmeared letter, the girl with a Latin book, the girl
with pan and spoon, and even Miss in her exclusive
red kimona. All came in, took one look and then let
"I simply can't finish this letter! I can't make this
cocoa. I can't finish up my hair," and even the one in
the red kimona exclaimed in disgust "Girls, are you using
a toaster? "
Then from over the transom came such cries of dis-
tress, calls for candles, threats and ejaculations against
us, that we, rather than venture out, valiantly quenched
our thirst and went quietly to bed.
Lucille McCloud, '16.
"We simply must wash those dishes" you say to your
room mate on Monday morning as you view the remains
Qflfjc College Greeting*
of Saturday night's frivolity, yes and probably Sunday
night's too. "Why we haven't a clean dish to our
"What's the use?" is her indifferent reply "Let's
leave them until later." Ordinarily you would feel the
same way about it but today you have the desire to be
"No," you say sternly, "If we leave them now we
never will do them," and laden with dishes you start to-
ward the sink, followed by "Roomy," who peacefully
swings the towel.
Once there you proceed to drench yourself as well as
the dishes. Perhaps you break two or three but that is no
occasion for sadness; — just that much less to wash next

THE TOWN GIRLS' BURDENS.
At I. W. C. when the day's work's o'er
For the home girls there is a treat in store
They feel that they can have some fun
When that glad 4:15 has come
They mingle their voices in happy tone
But the town girl rejoices that she can go home
She unearths her wraps from the hall tree stack
And joyfully takes the homeward track.
The town girl of course is a very good cook
And never has time to sit down with her book
Till after she's fussed around making pies
Doughnuts and cakes and things good to your eyes
Then when she has finished up all the chores
Her lofty ambition through psych and math soars
And it's thus that these plodders of the soil
Burn many gallons of midnight oil.
®fje College Greeting*
At last they seek their weary beds
To rest the things they call their heads.
The sober senior, worn with care,
The jaded juniors, with wits threadbare,
The saucy sophomores, work all done,
The frisky freshmen scarce begun,
Each giving way may clear her brow
And find some ray of comfort now.
Next morn, at early dawn shell rise
Before the stars have left the skies.
The fires are out, the house is cold,
Her story sad has oft been told.
She eats her breakfast from the shelf,
(For of course she must "sustain" herself),
While though they wouldn't the fact disclose
The family continues their calm repose.
She runs to catch the fleeting car
And falls on the ice with a frightful jar.
She hits the pavement with her head
, Coming down kerflop like a load of lead.
Her hat into the gutter falls,
As after the car she "sweetly" calls.
"Hey! stop your car for I have to make
The Woman's College by five of eight."
She reaches school in a sorry plight,
To say the least she is quite a sight.
Her classmates say, with a shake of the pate,
"O! that's the girl that's always late."
Of her French and English she knows none,
She flunks in her classes one by one,
While her heartless friends go stalking on
As calm and tranquil as the dawn.
O ! college girls, in the boarding school,
Who eat and sleep and breathe by rule,
Who grind out lessons by the ton,
$%e College <fi5reetmg*
And shine forth, brilliant as the sun,
Then roll in flowery beds of ease
With your feelings towering to the trees,
Try town girls' life for about a day,
Then see if you're much better'n they.
Rose Ransom, '16.
LIVING UP TO BELLS.
Only one who has had the experience can fully com-
prehend the depth of meaning in that phrase. And who
has had such excellent experience as a girl in college?
The bell, that ever present, faithful reminder, begins its
work fifteen minutes before breakfast, when it rudely
interrupts a pleasant dream, and you awake demanding
of your roommate whether that is the rising bell or break-
fast bell. In either case there would- be time for another
nap. That rising bell is cruelly early and the breakfast
bell, of course, is too late. But upon being informed
that it is fifteen minutes of seven, there is nothing to do
but make a wild dash to get down for breakfast.
Thus the day is started. Several minutes are allowed
before eight o'clock to prepare for room inspection — un-
less your room happened to have been inspected yesterday
— and to finish the math you didn't get last night. Three
classes and an hour of gym for variety fill up the morning,
allowing five minutes just before lunch to "put in" that
offensive middy. Perhaps you have a free afternoon —
free as far as recitations go — but it fairly flies if you take
a walk, write a letter or two and study a little on the side.
The dinner bell and bells for study hours follow.
Then comes "light out," all too soon, it is true, yet most
welcome to weary brains. How true is the verse, "A
slave to the bell, a vassal to the hour."

"THE FACULTY SONG."
(Sung by Faculty, February 18.)
We once were corridor teachers and on corridor duty bent,
If you wanted to borrow a pencil or knife, to us for per-
mission you went.
We sat with doors wide open and the hallway in full sight,
We mounted guard at nine-seventeen, and we helped you
turn out your light !
Here's to the corridor teacher and corridor duty, tra-la!
Study hours and quiet hours, tra-la-la-etc.
Since Student Government's come along the teacher's
closed her door,
She'll not sit up till ten o'clock to gaze your transom o'er!
She'll study hard for her next degree and early to bed
For the proctor is keeping the corridor, and the Faculty's
glad it's so !
Hurrah for Student Government, tra-la-la-etc.
Here's to the Board of Proctors! tra-la-la-etc.
(To Solomon Levi)
A Sophomore — "Oh yes! The Faculty will study hard
and they'll assign harder lessons and we'll have a harder
time than ever!"
Memories of the old days crowd forward — days when
we were "new girls." How well I remember that 31st
day of August, 1 866, when my dear father took me to the
old "I. F. C." and when he said the last goodbye to his
one little girl and left me, a lorn small figure crouching
on the lowest step of the great stairway leading up from
the spacious hall.
The last year of Dr. Chas. Adams in our college was
my first year. Even yet I seem to see his intellectual
face kindly beaming on his "little girls." Of mornings
QDfje College Greeting*
he would call off the letters in chapel, and each one for-
turate enough to get a letter would go forward and claim
it. How soon we learned to know the kindly ways.
We learned too from the naughty wily "old" girls that it
phased him as an author when we sought to draw the
bcok from the library that he had written telling him of
oir desire to read it at once. We learned too that a cer-
tan steely gleam of his eyes through his big glasses could
caise a chilly little tremble. The stately teachers awed us
1y their dignity and store of learning.
How soon we learned from the "old girls" that when
ill else had failed and the air seemed full of restraint, we
;ould flee to dear gentle Mrs. Adams for permissions of
ilmost any nature. How beautiful she looked to us!
3ut all too soon those above us found out her amiable
weakness and we were sternly forbidden to ask any favors
of her. This we felt to be a grief to her and to us.
Well I remember how one evening several cronies from
Jersey Co. found it impossible to "do" our mathematics
without mutual aid in the evening study hour. We all
roomed on the third floor and Hattie C , Julia S ,
and Jennie S roomed in one big room. My cousin
Emma D and self (Eunice W ) roomed nearby
on the same hall. Hattie C , always a leading spirit
in adventure, prevailed with Mrs. Adams and gained per-
mission that we spend the night in her room in the interest
of deepest research. After an evening of some study and
more refreshment, we arranged several mattresses in a
row on the floor. Hattie kept a good fire and after re-
plenishing it very early in the morning, fell asleep. Later
she found that it was doing even too well for she was
awakened by the burning bedding as a coal from the
big sheet iron stove had fallen out and ignited one of our
beds. Then ensued a fierce but silent fire fight in the
smothering smoke. Finally five spent and subdued girls
hardly able to giggle clumped together and whispered joy
that their peril was over. Two wary ones crept back to
Wfyt College #mtmg*
their own cold bed, while the others with busy lipids
cleared away all evidence of our fiery ordeal. Whenthe
little teacher, Miss Harmon, of our hall who always
seemed like one of the girls, marched in after "inspection
bell" all seemed in the usual placid order. However
later in the morning some one "smelt smoke," but we
never told a creature. As the old college buildings h; ve
burned twice since then, and their ashes now no doubt en-
rich the campus, this late telling can harm none of he
At the end of the college year of 1866-1867 our well
beloved Dr. Adams retired, and was succeeded by Vet
scholarly and amiable Dr. DeMotte, who brought to tli
college a delightful family and also a following of nej
pupils, who were lovely and desirable girls from Indiana
It interested us greatly to see Dr. DeMotte use the sigi
language, then new to us, in directing his children. H
could by a slight sign command their attention or obedi
ence in such an easy quiet way. This was really char-
acteristic of the man, ever kind and even tempered but
forceful and thoughtful. He with many others, both in-
structors and companions in school, are no longer with us
save in precious memory.
Mrs. E. J. B. Harris, 1869.

A cap and gown to wear
Go parading down the corridor
With a proud and haughty air.
My you're smart, my you're wise
Don't see how you stand the strain
With privileges rare which others don't share
It must be hard on your brain.

The Seniors they'll outshine.

That's all they do the live-long day.

What do you have to do ?
You can play and sing most anything
And daub in the studio too.
But I'd rather be a Freshman

They are actively engaged in things
From Math to Basket Ball.

Don't you wish you could be too?

On the evening of March 3rd, Mr. A. A. Sleyman of
New York City, an authority on Oriental rugs, gave a lec-
ture at the public library on "The True Rug of the Orient"
illustrating his talk with samples. The Home Economics
students attended in a body. They found it a very in-
teresting and instructive talk which fitted in nicely with
their class work.

FOURTH PREP PLAY.
On Monday night, February twenty-third the fourth
prep class presented "Mr. Bob" by Rachel E. Baker, in
Music Hall. Owing to the heavy snow fall there was not
as large an audience as might otherwise have been ex-
pected, but all present seemed to enjoy the ludicrous situa-
tions in which Mr. Brown was placed and the comedy of
Patty and Jenkins.
The Blackburnian is an enthusiastic paper, but there is
too great an abundance of slangy expressions to give it
rank as a literary product.
We found only one story in the Lincolnian and that

poorly constructed. If it were meant to be humorous it
missed the mark.
The departments are well represented in the Pegasus
and are of good character.
The Augustana has a forceful article on the removal
of the saloon, a splendid report of the Kansas City con-
vention, and an interesting well told story that go to make
it a paper worth while.
'The worst thing about wasting time is that it does not
aways belong to us." — Ex.
The Rockford Ralla contained a good poem and sev-
eral interesting stories. These made up the bulk of the
paper so that a decided lack was felt in the department
reports which are a vital part of a true college paper.
We recognize that a paper should not be overbur-
dened with locals and jokes, but well chosen ones give
spice to a number that is decidedly literary. St. Mary's
Chimes could be improved by such an addition.

"Have you ever stopped to think when a conversation
bored you that perhaps the fault lay in your listening as
well as the other person's talking? Do you not imagine
that sometimes when you went home from church and said
that the sermon was uninteresting, the minister might also
have gone home and told his family that his audience was
unappreciative and listless." — Western Oxford.
